What I really should be doing right now is packing for NY instead of blogging..but I am soooooo excited that NY fashion week officially started today and I am already seeing obvious and beautiful trends gracing the runway. As much as I am excited to attend Fashion week this year..I also want to make sure you guys are updated with all the current trends as well. This season is for Fall/Winter 2011..so these are trends you will see the mass wearing by next year Fall/winter 2011 …so basically you will be 6 months ahead of the trend then everyone else!
So I really wanted to be a great girlfriend and come back by the 14th (monday) to celebrate Valentines Day with the bf…but there was simply no way for me to cram everything in within 3 days. So we ended up extending my flight and my stay until Thursday of next week! (btw I have the most amazing & supportive bf..truly a blessing!)
MY FASHION WEEK AGENDA (thus far): On our arrival we will be getting fitted by Vivienne Tam and her team, Vivienne Tam show, Dinner with Lancome, Meeting with Jedroot, Lancome event (I will be modeling in this event!), Jason Wu for Barneys event, Tommy Hilfiger show, Victoria Beckham show, Chris Benz show, and Christian Cota show.
I wil be live tweeting from all the shows, events, and adventures so please Keep Up With Me by following me @Chriselletweets …i will also be updating my Facebook…so please add us on Facebook as well! If you have any Fashion trend questions or something you would specifically like to see from the runway..please write me on Facebook or here on my blog and I will do my best to answer your question ASAP!
ok..so I really should start packing..but now im wondering if its a bad idea if i decide to go with an empty suitcase and do all my shopping there and come back to LA with a very full & happy suitcase. hmmmmmm…
EEEEEKKKKK! I am so excited to finally show you what we have been working on for the past couple of months!
We had the chance recently to select 3 winners that we thought were so deserving to be pampered from head to toe. We flew out the Make Me Over winners Alexandra Becker, Samantha Llanos, and Sara Warren to Los Angeles, CA to spend the weekend with me and my glam crew: Michelle Phan, Leibi Carias, Sienree Du, and Karla Ticas ! What a blessing it was to get to know these three sweethearts and have the chance to pamper them!
So here goes our life changing weekend with our 3 beauties…. ENJOY!
I still cannot believe that the Make Me Over weekend has come to an end and I must say it was a beautiful ending. Initially the Make Me Over team was supose to make over 3 ever so deserving winning ladies from head to toe but it seems as if we as a team were too completely transformed and touchd by the process of the Make Over.
On July 16th the 3 winners Alexandra Becker, Sara Waren, and Smanatha Llanos arrived fabulously to the city of Angels…Los Angeles! They checked into the O hotel, the first indepdent boutique hotel in downtown Los Angeles, then they were picked up to start their Makeover day 1 adventure in Beverly Hills. The ladies arrived at the amazing Angus M Salon in Beverly hills and got pampered by the most talented hair stylist that I know..Sienree (Ree). Ree dedicated her whole day with the girls giving each girl a unique color, cut, and style to compliment their new look .
Here is Ree with the winning ladies at the Angus M salon after a long long day…this is just the beginning of their makeover adventures!
The winners arrived bright and early in the morning to a little suprise to the TONE IT UP girls. These gals are the fitness gurus and know how to TONE you up while having tons of fun. We started off the day with a mini bootcamp with their new gifts of Under Armour clothing and Asics sneakers! I am a firm believer in looking beautiful is feeling beautiful and healthy, so who better to go to than the TONE IT UP girls with their fun recipes and fitness programs!
Then the girls individually all recieved a facial to relax them and to give them that extra glow! After the girls were glowing from miles away they finally had the chane to meet Michelle Phan. Michelle presented each of them a Lancome Pink Box that was filled with hundreds of dollars worth of Lancome goodies! The girls rotated from getting their make up done by Michelle Phan, their hair styled by Ree , and get styled by me!
We all had such an amazing time getting to know each girl…they all individually had their own right to be so deserving of this make over. Each one of them already had a heart of gold and was beautiful in their own way but simply needed a booster upper to help them to shine and walk with confidence.
I cannot tell you how amazing these girls looked after their Make over, but the best part was seeing their own reaction to their new look. It’s not always about how amazing your hair or make up is done or how fabulously styled your outfit is but sometimes it takes that extreme to make you realize that you really are that beautiful. We witnessed with these 3 girls that beauty on the outside transforms your inner confidence…all of a sudden they started walking taller, smiling with confidence, laughing a little louder an even speaking with an opinion! That’s why our motto for the Make Me Over contest is “Beauty from the outside in, shining from inside out”
This is just a preview and we cannot wait to show you the images of the FINAL look of these girls….they are absolutely stunning! So stick around to see how Alexandra, Samantha, and Sara trnsform into beauty queens…and we also have our MAKE ME OVER VIDEO coming out very soon…it’s gonna be sickkkkkkk! enough said!
